GeographyEdit

The Great Northern railway passes through Queenton from the north-east to the south-west with Charters Towers railway station within the locality. The railway line forms both part of the locality's north-eastern boundary and also part of its western boundary. The Flinders Highway forms a part of the locality's eastern boundary.[3]

The land is predominantly flat (approximately 300 metres above sea level), partly residential, partly old mine ruins, and partly undeveloped bushland.[3]
